One of the many ways Bungie keeps Destiny updated is through special, limited-time holiday events, such as Halloween's Festival of the Lost. At PlayStation Experience last Saturday, Bungie took the stage to announce that this year's Christmas event is right around the corner. Dubbed "The Dawning," this event will bring new quests, gear, and weapons to Rise of Iron players. One of the biggest features to be introduced is a new scoring system for Vanguard strikes. In addition, the Sparrow Racing League is making a comeback for public matches through the duration of the event. Unlike last time, however, Sparrow Racing will remain available as an option in private matches after the event concludes.
The Dawning will be an exclusive event for Rise of Iron players when it launches on December 13th. The event will only last until January 3rd, though, so make sure to join in on the festivities while you can!
